PCMark test

The PCMark benchmark test evaluates the time it takes for a smartphone’s battery to drop from 100 percent to under 20 percent. We set the smartphone’s brightness to 80 percent before commencing the benchmark test.


The Motorola Edge 50 Fusion registered 9 hours 53 minutes on the test, while the Note 40 Pro logged 13 hours 24 minutes. The results suggest the Infinix Note 40 Pro should offer comparatively better battery life. 

Winner: Infinix Note 40 Pro

Video streaming test

Next, we set both smartphones to stream a 30-minute YouTube video at 50 percent brightness and volume level. At the end of the test, the Note 40 Pro registered a 5 percent battery drain, in contrast to the 4 percent battery drain of the Edge 50 Fusion. The Motorola phone marginally won the test.

Gaming test

For the gaming test, we played some moderately demanding games, including BGMI, Call of Duty: Mobile and Real Racing 3, to gauge the battery drain on each device. After roughly 90 minutes of gaming, both the Note 40 Pro and the Edge 50 Fusion showcased an average battery drain of 6.5 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively. The gaming test ended in favour of the Note 40 Pro.

Winner: Infinix Note 40 Pro

Charging speed

While the Motorola Edge 50 Fusion comes with 68W fast charging support, the Infinix Note 40 Pro supports up to 45W fast charging. Despite the difference in charging speeds, both the Edge 50 Fusion and the Infinix Note 40 Pro took 54 minutes to charge from 20 percent to 100 percent in our test. This test ended in a tie.

Winner: Tie


The Infinix Note 40 Pro is the overall winner in our battery comparison against the Motorola Edge 50 Fusion but we need to point out that the handsets were pretty close in most departments. Given the large gap in battery backup, the Note 40 Pro got the advantage in our comparison. However, it is important to point out that the Moto phone does feature a higher refresh rate panel and a better processor.

In conclusion, if you’re seeking a smartphone that delivers solid battery life, both the Edge 50 Fusion and Infinix Note 40 Pro are equally good choices, but the latter will likely give you a longer backup.
